First Line Friday and GIVEAWAY - September 13, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

Do you have special plans for the weekend? Some of my in-laws are visiting so I'm looking forward to a fun-filled weekend with them. :) 

My first line today comes from The Amish Christmas Matchmaker by Vannetta Chapman. You can read my review here and enter to win the book and some other great prizes!


"Annie Kauffmann thought she'd just experienced a perfect day - business had gone well, the fall weather was exquisite and each member of her family was happy and healthy."

Now it's your turn! Share the first line of the book closest to you in the comments below, then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today.

  1. My special plans for the weekend are watching a couple dogs for a friend. BUT, she does have a pool and when it's 90 degrees out, that's a nice perk to house sitting ;).

    I'm sharing the first line from One Final Breath at my blog but right now I'm reading WayFarer by Janalyn Voigt, so I'll share that line first line with you. An indrawn breath alerted Kai.

    Happy Friday.

  2. We are going to listen to a photographer talk about landscape photography tomorrow. Hoping for some hints for your trip to Utah next year.

    My first line -
    If the rancid coffee was an indication of the day ahead, perhaps Joy Kelliher should have stayed in bed.
    A MOTHER FOR HIS TWINS by Jill Weatherholt

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Finders Keepers by Sarah Monzon: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/09/12/first-line-friday-101/. It's such a good book. Currently, I am reading book 2 in the series, All of You, so I will share a line from there.

    "England, 1944
    The gangplank bounced under the weight of passengers disembarking the large transatlantic liner -- a veritable Goliath to the small David-like tugboats dotting the harbor."

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

Today on my blog I shared the first line from Shades of Light by Sharon Garlough Brown but I'm currently reading My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt so I'll share the first line from chapter 7 here: "Like a rent in fabric formerly whole, the wake of her vater's absence yawned wide and gaping." Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. My first line is from The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden

    May 1900 Washington D.C.
    Annabelle Larkin hadn’t meant to offend the world’s leading spice tycoon with her bold request, yet it seemed she had.
